on sunday, house minority leader nancy pelosi and majority leader eric cantor laid out the economic dividing lines. >> what we need is growth. we need growth with jobs. and if you have spending cuts, education of our children and other investments like the national institutes of health where you are hindering growth, you're not going to reduce the deficit. so it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. we have a budget deficit problem that we have to address. we think the deficit and the national debt are at immoral levels. we think they must be reduced. we're sick and tired of paying interest on the national debt. and that's 15% -- that's a large percentage of the budget. >> the tax fight for the president means higher taxes, more revenue. again, we can't be raising taxes every three months in this town, david. and you know, the bottom line is we want tax reform, but we want to go plug thosepresident talks bring down tax rates because we think that's pro-growth and we can let the economy grow and let people earn more money and keep more of it. the president's not talkin
and keeping that focus, i would expect that nancy pelosi's going to be speaker again pretty soon. >> david, obviously, interesting comments of the president there and the first read team says despite and we all know this, the debate over immigration and what to do about gun violence in this country, it is still the economy and they write, david, just in part, there's been no bridging between conservative view of austerity by measures of cutting spending cuts and what the democrats see here. as the solution, especially with sequester. we know that the democrats certainly have their plan as we have been told. they want a 50-50 split of spending cuts and tax hikes. that's the plan democrats are leaning toward but this still really is about the economy and how to solve some of the immediate problems we have. >> yeah. i must tell you that i'm one of the progressives who agrees with the economist paul krugman on this. any time talking about deficits, we are buying in to the right wing mantra somehow deficits are killing the economy. look at great britain and doing with their austerity plans and
make cuts as well. >> house minority leader nancy pelosi talking about sequestration and the budget on "fox news sunday" with chris wallace. she says the democratic party has made enough spending cuts though it is open to more and what the economy really needs is growth and new revenue. earlier this morning i had the opportunity to is sit down with chris wallace and hear more about his exclusive interview with the congress woman. chris, your conversation with nancy pelosi earlier today was actually the other day that you pretaped it, she seemed to indicate that democrats are bound and determined to raise taxes again. >> absolutely. you know, it is the old line the president used it during the campaign, balanced approach. it can't all be spending cuts, it has to be spending cuts and also some tax increases on the wealthy and loo it worked for them in the campaign. it worked during the argument over the fiscal cliff. i think and you see the president making the case now it is a choice between helping the middle class who the white house says will be hurt by these automatic spending cu
. that's what he was tweeting during the state of the union. he has declared nancy pelosi a domestic enemy against whom he is sworn to protect the nation. he has said that president obama is part of a socialistic elite planning to declare martial law. and he has said that the president may use the excuse of a flu pandemic to declare a martial law. he said, quote, we've seen that historically. guess how this gentleman feels about health reform? >> folks, this is obama care. let me start this by telling you what i think of this bill and obama care. they only have one agenda, and that is socialism. i call it -- i call it a steamroll of socialism that is being driven by nancy pelosi, harry reid, and fueled by barack obama. >> so very strong feelings about obama care. i should also tell you, though, that congressman browne also has very strong feelings about fruits and vegetables. he has very, very strong feelings about fruits and vegetables. >> the cdc, they're going to be calling you and finding out how many fruits and vegetables you eat today. this is socialism of the highest order. >>
an interview with nancy pelosi. so good guest list that they've had there at the caucus event in leesburg, virginia. >>> the other big story that we've been following is from the west coast. it's getting more incredible by the moem. the big bear ski resort outside of l.a. is now the epicenter for the search for this former sharpshooter wanted for multiple homicides. 33-year-old christopher dorner murdered three people, including a cop and the daughter of a former police captain. and then in a disturbing manifesto published on facebook, he calls members of law enforcement high-value targets and addresses random thoughts to people like hillary clinton and wayne lapierre. with me now, we have miguel almageur. i want to start with you, miguel. where are we? >> christopher dorner's vehicle was found in big bear, three hours outside of los angeles. that is where a lot of police activity is going on. certainly not the only police activity but officers are focused in that snowy mountain region three hours outside of los angeles. officers on the scene said they found footprints near christopher do
democrats today at their annual retreat in virginia. earlier the same retreat, nancy pelosi and the democrats hosted a foe political figure steven kol better. earlier still comedian colbert revved up the crowd, but last night he was all about the coming storm. >> please stay off the roads unless you have snow tires, snow chains, or one of these things. >> if yworst hit will be boston which is expecting five-foot snow drifts. my god. if that happens to new york, we won't find our mayor until spring. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. the northeast is bracing, seriously, for a powerful potentially historic blizzard. states of emergencies have already been declared in new jersey, connecticut, and rhode island. the snow began falling earlier this morning across manhattan and the outer burrows and will continue throughout the day potentially bringing new york to a standstill. blizzard watches and warnings are in effect through tomorrow up and down the east coast, including in new haven, connecticut, where you see the snow falling on the green at yale and a wintr
. >> mike: and hey, chris, nancy pelosis and john mccain on the show today. >> and we sat down with nancy pelosi. and one thing we talked about gun control she's calling for a study and obviously they want bans on guns and things like that. she says let's have a study whether or not this violence out of hollywood creates any violence in the real world and i said do we really need another study? here is a clip. >> why don't you go to your friends in hollywood and challenge them, shame them and say, knock it off? >> i do think whenever we do when you tell them it's evidence-based we have that throughout our proposal. in other words, we don't want to just be anecdotally writing bills. >> so the bottom line was, she was saying, you know, we're going after the gun lobby, but i'm not going to put any pressure on hollywood. >> so she moved not at all on that question he ththen? >> not a bit. >> tucker: nice try, not a bit. chris, we'll be watching. >> thanks a lot. and i say pelosi and mccain. with pelosi, quickly, a lot of talk about sequestration and whether it should be spending cuts or wheth
rough on nancy pelosi please. give people hope. i hope that means you're going to crucify -- >> oh really? would you stop it? >> throw a bucket of water on her and see what happens. throw a bucket of water on her. i'll bet she melts. >> stephanie: wicked witch humor. okay. >> you know, i know he makes the rounds to drum up business for the sunday show which is dead last and always has been. but you know, he appears on a show like thafnlt he appears oh, stop it. why are you making those cracks? they do it all the time. chris wallace is supposed to be the last sort of serious journalist in the fox news umbrella. it is just embarrassing. >> stephanie: all right. well said. eric boehlert for media matters. see you next week, honey. >> all right bye. [ applause ] >> we will be on next week. next monday. i know is a holiday. we'll be giving you a fresh live show. >> stephanie: enjoy. >> sara in colorado. >> good morning, folks. how are you doing? >> caller: your nails are pretty too if i can put my 2 cents in. >> i have a couple of things. i don't want to take up your time. i want to get
recall. we did not get an answer at all from john boehner, the house speaker. nancy pelosi does not own a gun. host: what about the chairman of the house judiciary and senate judiciary committees? the legislation is going to go to them. host: that is -- caller: that is one of the most interesting ones. senator leahy is a gun owner, but he is also a very strong advocate for gun control. he will be delivering one of the key points in the debate. their committees are likely to be the first out the door with legislation. there will be interesting things coming from some unlikely he, coming from vermont, who lives in a state where gun ownership is not all that unusual. it will be interesting to see if he can thread the needle between a healthy respect for guns and a healthy concern for guns and gun safety. i think that he will be a very interesting player to watch. host: let me conclude by asking how you interpreted the president's remarks yesterday in minneapolis. what does that mean for passage? caller: i think it is clear that they do not have the votes for assault weapons ban. there is a
with the economy? you've had nancy pelosi over the weekend saying the fact that we have a spending and debt problem is a false argument. you've got him disbanding the jobs council. so i'm not optimistic, but it does appear that he's going to pivot to the economy now. at this point he's starting to look like a ballet dancer, and i hope he makes the right decision. jon: andrew, do you agree the economy is the number one issue? >> no doubt about that. i do disagree with the issues that he talked about, i definitely believe that the economy is number one for the public, and that's where the president is going to focus tomorrow night. jon: well, if the economy is the number one thing, chris, he did get reelected, essentially, you know, on, well, i mean, mitt romney hammered him on the economy, and president obama still got reelected. >> well, he did. i don't know that he did a great job point out the challenges to the economy. we saw the economy start to rebound. but half of americans still believe we are in recession. so this could kind of be the nixon goes to china time for obama. if he were to reach
at all from john boehner, the house speaker. nancy pelosi does not own a gun. host: what about the chairman of the house judiciary and senate judiciary committees? the legislation is going to go to them. caller: that is one of the most interesting ones. senator leahy is a gun owner, but he is also a very strong advocate for gun control. he will be one of the key points in the debate -- he will be delivering one of the key points in the debate. their committees are likely to be the first out the door with legislation. there will be interesting things coming from some unlikely he, coming from vermont, who lives in a state where gun ownership is not all that unusual. it will be interesting to see if he can thread the needle between a healthy respect for guns and a healthy concern for guns and gun safety. i think that he will be a very interesting player to watch. host: let me conclude by asking how you interpreted the president's remarks yesterday in minneapolis. fantasizing universal background checks but briefly talking about the assault rifles ban. what does that mean for passa
for your attention to these appointments. signed sincerely, nancy pelosi. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from texas rise? mr. gohmert: mr. speaker, at this time i ask that the house adjourns. the speaker pro tempore: the question is on the motion to adjourn. those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. the ayes have it. the motion is adopted. accordingly, the house stands adjourned until 11:00 a.m. on friday, february 8, 2013. >> speaker boehner earlier today said he would oppose a delay in automatic budget cuts, the so-called sequester, without spending cuts and reforms. his briefing with reporters just under 15 minutes. >> the number one priority for the american people is creating jobs and getting our spending under control. even though we are a minority party here in washington, republicans have made every effort to address the concerns of the american people. less than two years ago president obama said, ultimately all this rising debt will cost us jobs and damage our economy. unfortunately the president and senate democrats have done almost nothing to addre
. and that you did not throw the games. i want to congratulate and thank nancy pelosi for her tireless efforts in the last election cycle and all of her leadership. thank you, joe kelly, my fellow new yorker. i understand she had to leave, but i was always reassured to see her on television when i was worried about the outcome. i want to thank steve israel, who i think has been one of the most thoughtful people in the house and who proved once again that if you really want to be successful in the long run in this business, you have to be good politics and policy. you have to think about what we're going to do and how will affect people. i have the honor of campaigning for a lot of you in the last election. i am very excited about the new members. [applause] not only because if i were a member of this caucus, i would be in the minority, which i think is a good thing, but because the diversity extends far beyond the categories visible to the eye or that you can put in an adjective. there's so much difference here in terms of life experience and knowledge and understanding the various aspects of
